FORT MYERS, Fl. (CNN) - An air traveler is facing charges for allegedly groping a TSA agent in an inappropriate way at a Florida airport in April.

Surveillance video shows 59-year-old Carol Price getting a pat-down at security at Southwest Florida international Airport in Fort Myers.

The TSA says the pat-down was done according to procedure, but Price, a former TSA worker, disagreed and complained to a TSA supervisor, who was also a former colleague.

Price can be seen in the video, angrily demonstrating how she was screened by grabbing the supervisor's leg and crotch area. She then tried to leave the airport, but was arrested.

Price is now facing two misdemeanor charges.
